that the city funds generally speaking. so, the basic way that the model works, is that tenants will contact us with building repair issues that they have not been able to resolve once they have taken the first steps of you know, contacting their landlord and perhaps, even writing letters, etc. and we are able then to sort of help them navigate through the system and get in contact with dbi when we need to. and then, as jamie mentioned work with the land lords as well. we contact the apartment association in some cases and have them sort of work on the other end speaking to the landlord complying with codes and all of that. and we have had great success. the other thing that it allows us to do is a little bit of a more of a case management model. some of our counseling that we do it is really where we are only able to sort of do an in and out and advise them a little bit and send them on the way and with this, we are able to do follow up calls and we send out post cards saying has your issue been resolved and we will track the cases thoroughly. if the people are not getting anywhere, we are abl

of type of ammunition that is in lethal property designed for use by military personnel. anything sold black talent which was designed with sharp prongs to cause significant injury upon impact. any ammunition designated by manufactures to sale to law enforcement or military agencies only, any ammunition that serves no sporting purpose and any ammunition to disbanned or other objects that are intended to increase the damage of the target. now the ordinances also required by the police department to create and maintain a public data base of brands and product lines of ammunition meeting the definition of this ordinance. the second ordinance would actually expand on the city's existing record requirements by requiring that any person selling 500 or more rounds of ammunition to someone in a single transaction they must report the sale to the police chief within 24 hours. this is required for anyone who sells ammunition in the city or delivers to city addresses. san francisco violence -- while legislation is not a panacea it is another tool for our efforts to address gun violence. since in

residents, business owners and community groups in the valencia nct. while we were granted conditional use at that time, our operating hours were unexpectedly restricted. we thought a 1:00 a.m. closure time with all customers off the premises by 2:00 a.m.. we were told by the commission president to return some time after business to remove the restriction and i stand before you to do that here today. since opening west of pecos we had no noise complaints, no alcohol beverage violation and no police issues. we are in a single story building with no residential neighborses above us and have a good relationship with the neighbors to the rear of the building. to one side there is a single story furniture store that's closed at night and the other side are portable library restaurant and blondie's bar and grill to the establishments on the block during the evening.

believe that we are rushing this at a rate that does not give us the ability to support. >> commissioner borden. >> i feel quite a bit differently. you know, we have -- the fundamental difference in this project and the project we saw a couple years ago was full demolition of the older building, which was pretty much been kind of a shed standing for quite sometime versus a total demolition. i mean, i always argue about i'm not always confused about de facto or actual demolition. but in all intents and purposes, the previous project we approved didn't even look like the same project although it was not considered a total demolition. now we have a total demolition and we basically have fundamentally the same project before us. the issues, we may have -- we have drawings in front of us and maybe they're not color rendering. but substantially everything about this project, the size and the scope, the only difference that we talked about is the size of the use for the restaurant there being whether or not it was commercial use, other commercial use incorporated. but i haven't actually heard a

to everyone's attention that this year is also a very important year for us in san francisco unified school district. as our early education department is celebrating its 70th anniversary. and this is incredible on a number of fronts, where we see school districts across the country that are doing away with the early childhood programs in san francisco, we have continued to invest and we see it in early in the childhood program. if you think back we are in the throws of world war ii and parents were off to factories to fight in the war and this community made a commitment to the youngest citizens that they would be safe while everyone threw themselves into the war effort. we have evolved into one of the finest education programs not only in california but in the nations. i would like to congratulate, everyone administrators and everyone that has been involved in the 70 years of the unified san francisco school district. congratulations [ applause ] . >> and lastly, i would also like to on behalf of all of the students in the community in san francisco, extend my heart-felt condolences to th

. it took a long time. and so there are some elements of this - and i should say since we've used it we're talking about at risk facilities that is true again. as some of the piers are, you know, classified as what we decide to say they're at risk and in danger of becoming red tagged it means we can't operate them. so the financial scoring criteria then will grab that idea if the pier is flipped from red tag to yellow tag that will cause it to score higher. so this does work into our priorities. and commissioner adams you say you have reference to the federal funding. for each of the piers that become red tagged or yellow tagged for example pier and a half the approach to that is two tier and we're deferring that project and hopefully, a larger project will capture that. now we're spending money to extend the pier. so really we take them only a case by case basis. but in terms of next steps what really what happened is this all factored into the priortion of the budget and those projects got budgeted. we spent a lot of time on and we've proved it works. so i'll go back to the presentati

the institutions that have served us so well over the last half century. they are dramatically changing. you see it certainly in media. you've seen it in the financial service industry now increasingly serving the music industry. and you see it in city government. you are a big participant in that dramatic evolution or what i would argue, the dramatic punctuation point in terms of the world we live in. i don't think it's cyclical. i think something dramatic is taking shape here as it relates to particularly the impact of technology is having on the world we're living in. we're living in a fish bowl. the whole idea of holding back information and keeping that information for those [speaker not understood] those in power, those days are over. age of amateurs, big is getting small, small is getting big. this democracy of voices, new contours of a new society, truly i think is being shaped. and, so, you are a big part of that. and i hope the spirit of engagement, civil grand jurors across the state, is respected in that light. as a supervisor, i was a big champion of you. as a marry was a little mor

fund. and then the use of the general re serve of 32.2 million. we are assuming you will need to use all of that reserve in order to balance the budget. and then the deposits to reserves, because of our increases to revenue, amount to 11 million. so, that brings us to a projected fund balance estimate of 174 million. as i mentioned before, 103 million of that was already committed to the year two. and the replenishment of the general re serve that we will be using this year needs to be incorporated in next year's budget, leaving us with a projected surplus of $38 million. so, the next slide provides you with a summary of our major tax revenue in the city and it shows you where the bulk of that surplus 72 million come from. and that is property transfer taxes, about $21 million over the budget as we are taking a look at the cash we've received thus far and estimating how much additional property tax revenue we will get for the reminder of the year. our second-largest is -- yes. >> if we can go back to the previous slide, the projected surplus, 38.3 million, how does that relate to the
, continue to help us on the exam process for the rest of the positions that we are trying to hire which are some it positions and some senior electrical inspecters and our permit technicians. as we expected the non-personal services are under non-expending because we get a lot of the bills at the end of the year. and then, in terms of the other expenditures, you know we continue with our services of other department and we have gotten the billings for the larger work orders so this is the... the city attorney services have come in less than i expected so i am going to discuss with them on this because we have referred many cases to them and i am not sure whether those are being picked up. and then, our program expenses, you know, are so small that it would not make any sense to spend a lot of time on those. >> the other thing that i would like to mention is that we are heading into the budget process and it is being submitted on friday and as i mentioned last time, it is kind of at that point there is a lot of discussions between, within the mayor's office and the controllers office and

conditional use authorization and staff recommends that you recommend to the board of supervisors to approve the sud and height reclassification. * this concludes my presentation. i'm available for any questions you may have. thank you. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, commissioners. i'm brett gladstone, partner in the san francisco firm of hanson bridget. i'm here today speaking on behalf of the project sponsor royal campus. i'd like to introduce some members -- is it 3 minutes? some members of the team and i'd like them to stand up as i introduce them. first of all, my client [speaker not understood] campos. and my co-counsel, jonathan rodriguez. jonathan will be available for questions on construction issues and lease with the city if you have any. i'll be talking about the planning issues. i'd also like to introduce consultant martin kirkwood and consultant jorge mandragon. first, i'd like to thank the city, particularly scott sanchez and kevin guy, for their hard work on this in the recent weeks, and david chiu, supervisor chiu and his aide, justin true as well. this is the t
stalled but we can certainly always use for hope advocating for that and to that end we are advocating very hard. to your point also not being able to get on with the maritime. oftentimes it's the peapron. whether it's a public works project we are building those and we know there's demand. to that end i want to deliver the point that pier 17 was rebuilt and now the south side of 15 so those will be coming online >> obviously we're trying to figure out the next step. it sound we've got some new issues and i would ask that it's going to be sort of your new forecast. do you think when you come back next time are you going to have the rate of the issues of financing are we going to find ourselves with double financing issues >> i think we've got everything studied and we've got a rapid - we've got a very good handle on our port out lines including the yellow and red tags. the red tags could collapse we're going to increase our inspections. we would retag them and move on them to get the full facilities assessed. we're going to go back and look at those every 6 months or so and is if the
in front of the city, we really deeply appreciate the year of support that you have given us already last year and look forward to the continuing support of funding to backfill this. what it means to us specifically is that there's a long waiting list in the city. we have a long waiting list of people that need subsidized child care. a couple years ago it was about 3,000. right now it almost sits at 5,000 people waiting for child -- affordable child care slots. and the working families going to school, working very hard, if they didn't get this child care, specifically at our site, we would lose about 30 families and children. so, if they don't have subsidized child care, they might not be able to work, not go to school, not be productive citizens of san francisco. so, i urge you seriously to consider this for this year and in future years to help the families that we serve on a daily basis in san francisco because it makes a difference. and this city is taking leadership if you do support this. i appreciate the time and effort and hope you support this wholeheartedly. thank you. >> thank
it is been in existence, so therefore it is a non-conforming use in terms of being able to load it and unload in that area. they do have a customer dock in the front in the parking lot. the environmental review for this project stated, or it is exempt from the environmental review and there is not a traffic study or any requirement for that. as far as fire and loading, we have not checked that, and that is something that is reviewed after the approval of the conditional use. >> i am going to oppose the continuance, we have the legislation that we are responsible for and we will not always, if we are not willing to up hold in this case, then i fear, i know that one case is not supposed to set a precedent, but it will. i don't think that it is going to do something, although the orchard will talk to people merchants will say that it is not going to effect me and it is okay if i come in there and i can buy something cheaper. as far as the other issues, like loading, if we do pass it, we can take it up in, you know, just deal with it. >> commissioner antonini. >> i don't know if we are supposed t
for us. we also have hal smith who is on the board [speaker not understood], and our current foreperson, mark [speaker not understood]. would you like to say anything about your jury service? >> well, i'm very grateful, one, to be selected. two, to have an incredible group of jurors to work with, representative of all aspects of san francisco communities and educational background. and it's been incredible to view what the city has to offer in a really intimate way. and we look forward to carrying on a rich tradition of following up with past reports, doing past juries proud, and we look forward to putting out some good reports. >> thank you. we also have, and i'm not going to call you out because i don't want anybody to [speaker not understood] we have several current jurors here and a number of former jurors here also. as kate said, the california jurors is comprised of [speaker not understood]. at the chapter here, we very much [speaker not understood] with the courts in recruiting and publicizing what the grand jury is all about. most people you talk to don't know what the civil gra
couldn't say anything to us, too. >>> no, i think we're just glad that the action is being considered and the recommendations are positive. appreciate it. >> we need a motion. >> yes, there needs to be a motion. is there any additional public comment on this item? then there needs to be a motion. >> commissioner walker? >> yeah, i move to take the recommendation of staff and reverse the action and not assess these. >> second. >> okay, there is a first and a second. i'll take a roll call vote. president clinch? >> yes. >> vice president melgar? >> yes. >> commissioner lee? >> yes. >> commissioner mar? >> yes. >> commissioner mccarthy? >> yes. >> and commissioner walker? >> yes. >> motion carries unanimously. case no. 67 77 3, 13 16 to 2022 mariposa street. owner of record and appellant richard e. thomas. action requested by appellant, the appellant is requesting that the order be reversed and that he be reimbursed for the cost of this appeal. >> is there somebody from the department to present? >> yes, rosemary. >> oh, sorry. >> good morning, members of the board. rosemary goff, housin
's why i think it's really important for us as san francisco to take this very responsible and balanced approach. the last thing i would say if you are using these kinds of weapons for sporting purposes and you are buying 500 rounds of ammunition, then, you should not be afraid of the chief of police knowing that in fact you are purchasing. i still don't understand why someone would need to buy more than five 500 rounds, it's not illegal. the fact that police are aware of it should not be a problem. we have two items before us. if we can get a motion. can i just ask a quick question? we received a number of e-mails and correspond ens and some angry calls. i do want to ask the question of captain oh larry, one person is questioning that hollow bullet points is necessary to self defense situation. he's saying self defense to these types of bullets is important and another person claims unfairly penalizes like herself in the district. can you respond to those? >> in regards to the first comment i would respond that it's not the bullet where you place it. it's that assist in your defense a
out the use he here. but what again is envisioned is a place where people can gather where there might be an opportunity for some kind of food service or food court or even a restaurant on the ground level. it's a tough corner because of the parking structure across the street from the hospital, but we'd like to try to activate it at least set the structure in a best position possible to activate it in that way. at the other corner of the building that i mentioned, this is the entry if you're coming west ward along 16th street and you're headed towards the building, this gives you a sense of again stepping back away from the freeway. there's a grander sense of arrival and mission bay than there otherwise would and again mission bay is very heavily pedestrian and bicycle traffic street providing opportunities to stop and rest at this point. so, we go to the elevations which is the next page in your package. in addition to creating the open spaces at the corners sw creating the breaks between buildings, each of which is about 40 feet in width, we also did things with architectural materi
a three-quarter vote for us to issue more bonds. in addition to what julie has mentioned, while we want to constrain the costs, we have also been achieving a great deal of savings on our revenue bond issuances. we have refunded every revenue bond that we could, achieving $52 million of rate payer saving over the last three years. in addition, we sold sewer bonds on monday morning and we were the first city department to sell bond since the city's geo bond rating was upgraded. and the market received us very, very well. we saved rate payers over $150 million because of the aggressive bidding buyers wanted to buy san francisco sewer bonds. we achieved foreign rates at about 3.58%. so, while julie and i give you the good news and the bad news, we're balancing the budget and we want to do that to make sure rates stay as affordable as we can. >> another option we would have, too, supervisor, we have an ongoing capital program for our water enterprise and there's been question that some of the improvements in that program could be deferred slightly and some of the wsip improvements could be m
that no more than ten percent would be used for the sale of adult beverages. this is a large store and represents a large foot print and wall green's in intention is to not have a larger area for sales. the other issue i want to call out before reading the other voluntary conditions is when the alcoholic beverages are sold. i received feedback about what had been initially propose for a midnight time for when the beverage would end. they have a couple clubs that we often see a lot of activities related to and folks late at night wanting to purchase alcohol an being able to do that at this site up until midnight. the cvs had a 10 pm closure time with their sales. what we've agreed with walgreen's is the following during thursday, friday, saturday night when there is most activity that sale of alcoholic beverages would be permitted from 10 a.m.-10 p.m.. in addition to those requirements, let me run through other requirements to again make this site parallel to what we did at the cvs sight is we have asked for and wall green's has agreed to all wine bottles to ensure that an indivi
friendly. to meet the standard of our city rather than us conforming to whatever their business model is. that's the reason i attended the pre-application meeting and that's why i've been in communication with project sponsors. * ever since then to try to assure that this had a greater street presence to what they originally proposed. bear in mind those fancy architectural renderings you're looking at are only appropriate if you're in a helicopter hovering over the project site. the reality on the ground is blanch street is a one-way street going eastward towards the embarcadaro. and in general, what you will see on the ground is the backside of this project and the blanch street frontage. so, if you do approve this project, please ensure that bryant street gives back something to the community. thank you. * >> thank you. next speaker. >>> hello, my name is rick carp, i'm the president of cole hardware here in san francisco and i'm asking you to please reject this project based on the formula retail issues. it's been my passion since the early '80s to try to keep big box and formula ret
for a short time, so having someone with tom nolan's experience and to be able to use him as a role model with his interaction with the city is important to us and we do continue to face a lot of challenges at the mta, we know there still is a lot of work to be done, but like tom, i'm incredibly impressed with the agency, i'm impressed with the employees, i have also been impressed with the support from the board of supervisors with the -- so, i'm here to hope that you voice tom's nomination on to the full board and thank you very much. >> are there any other public comments? seeing none, public comment is closed now. colleagues, -- well, i'll give my thoughts. i think i'm very happy that tom's willing to extend his commitment to this commission. i just met him recently and just talking to him, i realize how much knowledge he has of the situation in san francisco under the mta hospices and that his commitment towards those issues are second to none, so i'll be supporting your nomination. colleagues? >> i too will be supporting the nomination, it was a pleasure working with him on jpb. >>

us really going through everything and ensuring that we dotted every i and crossed every t and i know it was a lot of work for their staff. largely, the proposal would amend the municipal election code to incorporate the state law allowing the nomination procedures for city college and board of education for example to continue to be governed by state law but also changing some of the dates for the board of supervisors and for other -- our may yoirl race as well sx, also we made some other nominations according to the advice of elections, around the circulation of badges and filing fees, i would also like to ask the rules committee to consider making some amendments today, further clean-up of this legislation, one is to section 205 and this would push back the nomination deadline for all candidates to match those of the mayor and the board of supervisors so this would be by the 146 day before the municipal election, it also specifies the period by which the candidates and the mayor of supervisor may circulate their nomination papers. section 220 and 260 follow along the lines of this
? it has to be after several years of -- >> of positive revenue news. and then when we do use it, it's only a portion of the deficit. the revenue deficit. we had suggested that the controller provide a more broad summary of all of the reserves and the set asides when the committee goes to five members. [speaker not understood] the kind of rules and policies regarding all of these reserves. since the financial policies were in effect a couple of years ago, we really have made a tremendous amount of progress in establishing reserves that have been looked upon very favorably by the rating agencies and though more importantly we will have money available in the next downturn that will keep us on a more steady footing in terms of how much money and it will prevent big cuts and layoffs. so, i'm available to answer any additional questions and we will definitely be with you on a weekly basis and provide you with updates as they occur. >> thank you. colleagues, any further questions? thank you very much, ms. zamuda. and ms. howard, i know you spoke earlier. we asked you about the kind of impact on
maintenance here and other garages that it would be more appropriately used for? >> well, that's what this bond issuance is for, in terms of an mta wide, so we can address concerns related to all the garages, not just japan center. or sutter stockton. so, that is our main concern, is that knowing that not only this garage needs improvements, but city-wide as well. >> i understand that, but that seems to me like you're taking bond money, then, and transferring it through a wheel to operational expenses. to the budget analyst analyst. >> mr. chair, as we understand it, the bonds that have been issued are taking care of their capital improvement needs. * so, this in effect winds up as surplus and can be transferred for operating expenditures to the mta. so, they're not short changing their capital needs as we understand it. >> thank you, i appreciate that. i guess my question is but by issuing the debt, you say you're not short changing the capital needs, but tame point in time you're [speaker not understood] and you're issuing bonds against it for operational expenses. you're floating b
. >> yes, this train has left the station. >> yeah. >> it is happening fast, but a lot of us think, why? why did it take so long? again, a lot of thanks is due to the people in our code advising committee and a lot of people who have worked on this for many, many years and for some of us on the commission as long as we have been on the commission we have been talking about it. it is overdue and i am support of it as well. i am just concerned with a couple of things maybe that some of the legislators have not discussed and if they have, maybe they could let us know about it. one was we know that a lot of the buildings the main part of the construction is going to take place on the ground floor where it is mostly parking garage and things like that. but we also have some small businesses that occupy some of these spaces. and so this located a small business where there is a bar or a restaurant even for six months or a year, that is the depth of their business. they can't just go away and come back. and expect everything to be all right. so i was on wondering if there was any relocation an
and the first african american superintendent until 2007. she came to us during an unsettled time in history and spent years cleaning up our financial weaknesses uncovering problems with our systems and strengthens our administrative infrastructure. i have a photo in my office of her and then general counsel that i refer to as the $53 million photo. it was taken right after we found out that we would be receiving a $53 in restitution and rewards related to our building systems lawsuit settlement. we were able to redo all of the internal systems that had been ineffectively installed. caused by the demise of the company and used that to avoid any layoffs that year. during her time we were one of the five finalists in the 2005 prize for education receiving $100,000 for students scholarships, in 2004, we became the highest achieving urban school system in california as we have been ever since. superintendent included the development of the stars, the student and teachers achieving results program that reorganized the district more equality to oefp most challenged schools. we developed and implem
still remains. so, where we are today, in order to both issue the debt and also for us to issue the debt to refinance the garage debt, and also as a result of a number of recommendations that came from a controller's audit that was performed in 2011, we restructured all the leases. we developed a standard lease form that incorporates many of the recommendations from the controller's office and also other things that we needed to have in place in order to issue the debtorthat we wanted to have in place in order to issue the debt. so, we've been working through the different garages to get the new lease terms in place. you recently approved two leases for -- one for the [speaker not understood] garage and one for the 5th and mission garage. in some of these cases the existing nonprofit entities have decided to change their role and shift to a more advisory structure and that's what happened with ellis o'farrell at 5th and mission. in other cases such as the two that are before you today, the nonprofit has wished to remain in place and continue serving the function that i referenced. so, wh
speaker, please. >> hi, i'm going to be using the overhead fair warning. i did send packets. first i want to start with this item which points out to the question about there were protest on the first alcohol license that walgreen's tried to get at that sight. it's good for one year. that's where the 124 protest come in. we didn't have to go back into the the community to get more. there is 124. that's why they are good in the packet. if abc did not forward it to the police, that's not my problem. the community has spoken through these protest. they are legitimate and should still be counted on 124. okay. the proof is abc recognizes it. again 124. we are not talking about a great store. we are talking about alcohol. this is what we are talking about. we are not talking about all the things the store is going to offer. all the people that came up and spoke in favor of it they talked about the amenities. target says the same thing and any destination store is going to say the same thing. we are doing this and that, it's the same thing but it's going hurt our small businesses. we are talking
